Hottest place in Morocco?

Zagora, Morocco

Zagora, Morocco

Zagora, Morocco

Zagora is another of the cities in the south of Morocco that claims to be "the hottest place in Morocco". Zagora is not terribly different from any other place out here, despite being the largest city inside a radius of 150 km.
The mountain rising up behind town centre gives it a dramatic look, and is together with the touristic road sign saying that it is 52 days to Timbuktu, the most popular photograph souvenirs.

Hotels and alternatives
Zagora has a very good offer of hotels in all price ranges. There is a handful of budget offers, and three 4/5-star hotels. Prices are at a normal Moroccan level.

Restaurants and alternatives
Beyond the restaurants which are found in most hotels, there is little in Zagora to make hungry travellers enthusiastic. But the hotel restaurants offer fairly interesting menus, good food and value for money.

There is a chance of finding activities in the larger hotels.

Change Money
Zagora has two banks, which offer normal services.

Good connections north, both by buses and taxis. In southern direction, there is far less to choose from, but there are two departures to M'hamid per day.

Zagora can be very hot during the day, but equally cold during night. Bring necessary clothes, perhaps a hat and sunglasses.
